The third most abundant element found in the sun, oxygen is, simply, what we live and breathe. In its purest definition, it’s necessary for us to sustain life. And many aestheticians and cosmetic specialists today maintain that it’s equally important for healthy, younger-looking skin.

Oxygen facials officially became trendy, must-have spa treatments when celebrities such as Madonna and the stars of “Sex and the City” touted their cosmetic benefits. But they’re not newbies to the skincare scene. Oxygen facials have been around since 2002, when they were introduced in Australia by a company called Intraceuticals who invented an oxygen facial machine similar to that used to administer chemotherapy to skin cancer patients. Since then, technology and products have made significant advances, but the same basic premise remains: that of delivering high-pressurized oxygen infused with botanical, vitamin and nutrients to tired, listless skin.

For those who have yet to experience the healing properties of an oxygen facial, the 30- to 60-minute procedure is straightforward and stress-free. As with a more traditional facial, the dermatologist or aesthetician conducts a comprehensive skin analysis, which helps them customize the facial experience to each individual’s skincare needs. After skin is cleaned, steamed and exfoliated to remove excess dirt and oils, an airbrush gun-like wand emits oxygen (90-95% purity) that helps the skin absorb rich serums infused with hyaluronic acid, botanical extracts, antioxidants or collagen. With no high pressure or harsh chemicals, these moisturizing agents are readily absorbed, resulting in smoother, healthier and younger-looking skin.

A gentle, non-medical and non-invasive procedure, oxygen facials reap numerous rewards with little to no risk. Since they don’t require injections or chemical peels, they’re well-suited for all types of skin – including sensitive skin that that might respond negatively to harsher delivery methods. Unlike more rigorous treatments, oxygen facials do not typically have side effects like stinging, burning or itching, and facial enthusiasts can resume their regular activities immediately without any down time or recovery period.

Less costly than Botox or other chemical facial fillers, the benefits of regular oxygen facials are numerous. As any spa devotee will attest, these ultra-hydrating skin treatments can:

  • Rejuvenate skin that has been exposed to environmental pollutants and damaging sun rays

  • Improve blood flow and strengthen skin’s elasticity

  • Encourages the growth of new cells and collagen

  • Help get rid of acne scars and reduce the appearance of blemishes

  • Smooth out fine lines and wrinkles

  • Even out skin tone and diminish pores

  • Combat visible signs of aging and improve skin texture

  • Result in healthier, younger-looking skin
